Free Interpretation Skills Development Pilot Project
A new, members-only benefit.



The CSPG has collaborated with Calgary-based SeisWare International, Inc. on a pilot project to allow our members to practice their geology and geophysics interpretation skills for free.
The pilot will run for three months starting at the beginning of June and ending in August 2021. CSPG members can register for a maximum of 1 session in each month prior to the registration deadline.
Each session is for 8 hours, from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm mountain time. 

SeisWare will be providing a virtual workstation where both their geology and geophysics interpretation programs will be installed. Three open-access datasets will be available, as detailed below. 

 Mandatory Registration Form:
*A SeisWare user Agreement needs to be filled by all registrants and emailed to: [email protected]SeisWare will then contact the interested members to schedule the workstation session. All members who access the workstation during the pilot will be asked to provide voluntary feedback on their experience to the CSPG. 

There are three (3) Open-access Datasets available for this Pilot Program. These are: 

A) Teapot Dome Project

The Teapot Dome project uses data from an oilfield in Wyoming, U.S. It Includes both 2D and 3D seismic data as well as a full suite of well data (formation tops, logs, rasters).
Users can analyze both seismic and well data and even do basic petrophysical analysis to calculate Net Pay using the Geology Calculator.
All data is supplied from the U.S. Geological Survey/ Department and provided by the U.S. Department of Energy.

B) BC Montney Project
The project contains geologic data in British Columbia’s popular Montney play. Well data includes formation tops, well logs, zones, and fracture data.
This dataset allows users to analyze the Montney by creating regional cross sections and identifying target zones. All data was provided courtesy of Petro Ninja™.
This project does not have any seismic data.


C) Moomba Big Lake Project
The Moomba Big Lake dataset is from the Cooper Basin, an onshore basin in South Australia. The project has 2D and 3D seismic that can be used for horizon and fault interpretation.
The wells in the area have formation tops and logs loaded so that they can be used for the seismic well tie.
A velocity model can be generated for the area to do depth conversion on the seismic.
The data has been provided by the State Government of Australia.
